A Delicious Debut and a Giveaway!

by Shari Randall

Dear Readers,


Greetings from the quiet northeastern corner of Connecticut, the setting for my new series, The Ice Cream Shop Mysteries. The setting, the village of Penniman, comes complete with a covered bridge, pocket farms, and the Udderly Delightful ice cream shop that specializes in unique flavors crafted with local products. It's a dream setting and I have to be honest - the research for this series has been a dream, too! I've traveled the back roads of New England searching out the most delicious little ice cream parlors to inspire Udderly Delightful. The ice cream maker on my kitchen counter has gotten quite a workout as I've experimented with recipes for the book.

I'll share more about the series as we get closer to publication date, but I did want to let you know that my wonderful publisher has set up a Goodreads giveaway with 50 (!) print copies of THE ROCKY ROAD TO RUIN on offer. So click the link to head on over, enter, and read more about the story! Here's the link to the Goodreads Giveaway.

Shari Randall is the author of the Agatha Award winning Lobster Shack Mystery series. Her new series, The Ice Cream Shop Mysteries, written as Meri Allen, debuts on July 27 with THE ROCKY ROAD TO RUIN. You can follow her on Instagram and Facebook @ShariRandallAuthor and @MeriAllenBooks.

  1. Love the title and who doesn't love ice cream! Best wishes, Sheri, I'm curious why you chose a pseudonym if you don't mind me asking. Thanks!

  3. Ah, ice cream memories! At Aunt Mary's the kiddos could have ice cream, once they finished the cereal in their bowls. That's why my niece and I were searching Martha's Vineyard for an ice cream shop at 10 a.m. ;-)
